Don't news services get news before we get news, though?

Like "IBM will announce a third quarter loss this morning" and such. Is this really that suprising?

A number of winners were announced on Tuesday ahead of the main ceremony, including BBC World Service, which the International Academy of Digital Arts and Sciences named best site in the radio category.

This was just a click away...

So again...we've got a faulty headline!

Would people please read the articles before submitting them with a "funny" headline? There's enough weird shiat around as it is.

Well, they just ruined the surprise. Bastards.

>The multilingual website beat off four challengers

Gee I've never thought about beating off my challengers, I'm always doing myself.

The multilingual website beat off four challengers in its category at a ceremony in San Francisco.

Sounds like it was some ceremony.

They do the same thing at the Oscars, handing out some of the trophies the night before.

I call dibs on posting the Oscar version of this article when it comes out. And you won't be allowed to complain.

Webbys suck. You have to pay a fee to be considered for nomination. Stupid as hell.
